WCI Communities announced today that it has released 196 new homes for sale in Parkland’s Heron Bay. Heron Bay is one of South Florida’s biggest and most prominent country club communities. The community is located on Coral Ridge Parkway, just west of the Florida Turnpike and I-95.
The gated community includes 3,000 homes on 1,184 acres with an 18-hole golf course and multiple biking and walking trails. Heron Bay’s Somerset neighborhood includes 115 new single-family homes priced from the mid-$300,000. The Sawgrass Bay neighborhood has 81 homesites and is priced from the $500,000s.
The homes’ floor plans provide buyers with multiple design choices and the homes also feature many energy efficient aspects.
“Residential development is once again on the move in South Florida,” said Douglas L. Schwartz, Senior Vice President of WCI Communities. “We are proud to be able to offer such a wide variety of choices to families looking for new homes in a first-class development such as Heron Bay.”
The good news for the market is that according to a 2009 study done by the National Association of Home Builders, the approximate one year effect on the construction of 100 single family homes in a year will have generated over 300 jobs in the first year alone.
The construction will have also produced $21.1 million in local incomes, which accommodates for $14.8 million in local wages and salaries. The impact of the construction will also create a recurring of $3.1 million in local income and 53 jobs.
